About Love...

Belle and Sebastian inspired a lovely informal campaign a while back for their album to "write about love" I remember really liking the images I saw pop up around the web in response...and as I am finishing up my most recent obsession with Rebecca Solnit (and my insistent posting of quotes of her work) this is the image that I couldn't get out of my head as I read and re-read these words...

Many love stories are like the shells of hermit crabs, though others are more like chambered nautiluses, whose architecture grows with the inhabitant and whose abandoned smaller chambers are lighter than water and allow them to float out to sea. ~Rebecca Solnit
